Loved the location. Walking distance to everything you needed. Short drive to other nearby towns and beaches. Walked to the beach across the street every day to swim and watch sunsets. Being on the top floor and having a nice sized balcony was essential for us.
As others have mentioned, it does get warm in the bedroom. But all units in this building are similar due to the way the air conditioning systems are in place.
Everything was clean. Kitchen seemed new. Bill is a super friendly host.
Property had two pools and BBQ grills as well.
It was our first time in Maui. We loved our trip.
Really enjoyed the location. Within walking distance to everything. Bill was very kind to check in with us, to see if we were enjoying ourselves. Would definitely stay there again.
We had a great holiday on Maui! This condo is the perfect location -steps away from the beach, and the grounds were lovely. We made good use of the pool and bbqs. The unit also has good appliances. The atmosphere is laid-back and ideal for someone wanting a quiet and relaxing stay. Bill was a great host- great communication and very friendly.
The downfall was the air condition not reaching the bedroom- as this did affect our stay. We did read this in other reviews but thought we would be able to manage it. We spent time trying to figure out a way to create air flow and even purchased extra fans. In our opinion, it was too hot in there to sleep (between 27-30 degrees C), so we ended up using the sofa bed and trying to sleep between the springs. And as other reviews have stated, the condo is dated and could use some sprucing up and a good hard scrubbing, and perhaps some new sheets and towels.
With some way of adequately cooling the bedroom, we would definitely stay again! If this isn’t something that bothers you, then you will have a fantastic stay. Every day is a good day on Maui. Thank you for letting us use your place!
Perfect location and great bang for your buck.
Bill is an bc attentive and responsive owner.
South Kihei is a great place from which to base a Maui vacation. Weather is among the best on the island. This top floor apartment style condo is quiet and well equipped.

Great location in Kihei. Easy to visit sites around island. Traffic and pedestrians in Kihei make driving a little challenging but it didn’t deter from our enjoyment of the beauty of Maui.
Great location! Our condo was in Kihei and centrally located to anywhere we wanted to go . We could walk to restaurants as well as drive . Bill , the owner , was very easy to communicate with and professional. I would highly recommend this condo !
We rented C611 from Bill! Fantastic owner who really cares about his guests! Unit had spectacular views from living room and lanai. Unit definitely had that comfortable Hawaiian feel with some Hawaiian decor but nice modern kitchen with almost every gadget you could think of. Gas range, full sized fridge, microwave & dishwasher were all standard. The bedroom had a king sized bed and a closet full of beach amenities including chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards and pool noodles. It also came with large beach towels to use during our stay. We had a/c in living room, two ceiling fans and a floor bedroom fan to move cooler air into the bedroom for sleeping at night. More than adequate- downright comfortable. We went to the beach in the morning and the pool in the afternoon. The pool had a shady covered area where I hung out while my wife would find a lounge chair in the sun! So comfortable!! This complex has a few reasonable rules to ensure the enjoyment of everyone - no glass anywhere near the pool, no jumping into the pool (so no one gets splashed), quiet hours after 10 pm. This is not a spot for party animals, but a wonderful spot for couples and families. Can’t wait to come back again!
The listing is 100% accurate and the host, Bill is a terrific communicator who was always timely in replying back to our questions.
Everything in the condo works well and the property itself is well managed, clean and in a great location. The view of the ocean from the lanai is very nice though you cannot watch the sunset (directly) but if you walk across the street (5 minutes or less) you'll have a great sunset to watch every evening.
The surrounding neighborhood has everything including several closeby and tasty eateries.
One call out - there's no AC in the bedroom though there's a ceiling fan and a table fan that helps.
We had a great time and we highly recommend Bill's condo.
The apartment was clean and Bill was nice and kept in contact with me. The only negative was the air conditioner was in the living room but there was a fan in the bedroom that help to help with the heat. An excellent location, easy access to the beach and plenty of restaurants in walking distance.
The place was exactly as described in the listing. Would definitely recommend.
Great location. Directly across from a great beach. Pool was really nice. The property grounds were well kept with wonderful trees and flowers. Not too much noise. Bill the owner immediately addressed any concern we had which was very minor. Overall a wonderful experience and great place to stay.
Bill was great to deal with and easily available. The check in, location, and overall stay was great. The condo itself is older and could use updating in the bathroom, but the kitchen and family room have been updated, and the view from the balcony was great!
The location across from K2 was fantastic. The kitchen set up was really nice and we enjoyed hanging out on the lanai. Everything about the condo was just right for us in this trip. Bill was very responsive and was great to communicate with!
Bill's condo is a great place to stay in Kihei, with so many beaches and parks within walking distance. There are lots of food options nearby as well. The condo is well stocked with ample dishes and cutlery in the kitchen, and the lanai that looks out to the ocean on one side and Haleakala on the other, was a wonderful place to have our meals. Bill was super communicative and helpful throughout our stay. Would love to stay here again if I return to Maui!
My husband and I stayed in Bill’s condo for 10 days over Christmas. What we loved most about Bill’s condo was the view and sunshine on the lanai. The lanai faces south and in the morning you can watch the sunrise over the crater, and in the evening watch the sunset. When we weren’t at the beach, we were on the lanai!! We decided not to rent a car this time, and instead rented hybrid bikes for a week. Bills condo was close enough to ride to other beaches in Wailea and to grocery stores, restaurants and shops throughout Kihei easily. We also enjoyed the pool areas for bbq’ing and for relaxing and reading (we found the upper pool to be very quiet and peaceful! - great for reading). Bill was amazing to communicate with - responded to questions and requests quickly and positively. Would definitely recommend this condo to friends and family!
Great place to stay by the beach in Maui! Met my lodging criteria: clean, comfortable, location to activities i.e. beach, restaurants, whale watch tours, etc., and great view from the room. Some reviewers were concerned with old brown carpet in bedroom, older furniture, lack of AC in the bedroom. Do not let them scare you!
Look at the picture of the view from the sixth floor balcony. Imagine each morning you get up with your coffee and cinnamon raisin toast to see the mesmerizing view of the sun moving up from behind the beautiful mountain. Then you turn to your right to see the turquoise ocean with the first paddle boarders of the day. Finally, you look straight ahead at the bird on the palm branch next to you chirping his song! Heaven!
I travel to Kihei at least once a year and highly, highly recommend Bill's condo!!! The unit itself has everything you need; the view is absolutely spectacular, with views looking up to Haleakala clear down to the ocean. We watched sunset every evening from the lanai, such a treat! The grounds of the Akahi are lovely, and you cannot beat the location: across the street from 3 of my favorite beaches on Maui, and walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Bill is a great communicator, if I had any problems, I am certain he would've helped me solved them within the day. I look forward to staying here again!!
We we thoroughly enjoyed our stay as always. Any issues that came up were quickly taken care of. Bill and AA Oceanfront were on top of things immediately.
After having to postpone this trip several times over the last 3 years, we were able to come back to Kihei where we had our honeymoon. When we saw Bill's place on the VRBO site, it looked exactly like what we were looking for and booked it about a month before we were supposed to arrive. We knew we made the right decision when he called us just a few minutes after booking, to thank us and to see if we had any questions. He showed that same personal attention again during our stay to make sure we checked-in ok and that everything was in order.
Kihei Akahi is ideally situated across the street from the beach. Bill's unit has a great view of the ocean from the balcony, where we had breakfast and watched the sunset. Our first impression when we walked in was how clean everything was, well maintained (albeit some 'cosmetic' refresh might be in order) has a great layout, and more than enough space for two people. The grounds are also well maintained. and the management company has an office on the property with an incredibly welcoming staff available 7-days a week.
We highly recommend Bill's place, and look forward to coming back, hopefully sooner than later.
Cute condo. The view was beautiful. Bill was nice. He was quick to respond if we needed something. We enjoyed our stay.
Bill’s condo had absolutely everything we needed for a week-long stay. We enjoyed watching the sunset from the balcony and cooking dinners in the kitchen. The location of the condo can’t be beat - walking distance to three beautiful beaches. We were left plenty of supplies to last us through the week. Thank you Bill for a great stay! We will definitely stay again.
So many great things... comfy bed, nice linens, clean, nice kitchen with gas stove, great view to ocean, beautiful landscaping, and friendly staff, many restaurants and bus stop nearby. 3 beaches to choose from and they weren't too crowded. Good snorkeling. We felt that the price we paid for our stay was a great value and were therefor able to overlook a few other items in need of upgrade (bedroom carpet- old, but clean; rusty chains on light fixtures) The A/C unit is in the living room, and we were able to keep the bedroom comfortable with use of 2 fans provided and the ceiling fans, but if you like to sleep really cool, it might not be enough for you. Also great to have the beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. Thanks, Bill, for a great vacation.
THE best location!! Few minutes away from the beach + great restaurants. I didn’t have a car so it was very easy walking everywhere and trying local places. The property itself is very comfy - big kitchen, great sized bedroom, and nice living area. Not to mention the balcony! It’s on the 6th floor and faces the beach so you have great views all day. Bill was an amazing host and contacted me right after I booked and kept me informed of any changes due to covid. I would absolutely stay here again my next time in Maui! Thanks so much Bill.
